ACK Animation Studios’ Critically Acclaimed Film, SONS OF RAM, to Be Showcased in STEREOSCOPIC 3D at TAAFI 2013, Toronto

July 16, 2013

MUMBAI, India, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Amar Chitra Katha [http://www.facebook.com/sonsofram ] has been India’s favorite
storyteller for more than 45 years and now, its animation division ACK Animation Studios
continues to bring this rich legacy to the world of film and TV. SONS OF RAM
[http://vimeo.com/channels/ackfeaturefilms ], their first theatrical feature film
(produced in collaboration with Cartoon Network India), continues its international
festival rollout at TAAFI 2013, after the successful domestic release across India last
November. TAAFI, Toronto’s first and foremost International Animation festival, celebrates
the many forms of animation from around the world, supporting and nurturing the community
that creates this art form. SONS OF RAM will be screened in the presence of its creators
on Sunday, 28th July, 2013 at 12:30 noon at the prestigious TIFF Bell Lightbox.

SONS OF RAM (written and directed by Kushal Ruia), tells the story of twins Luv and
Kush and their journey to their roots, with the great Indian epic RAMAYANA as its
backdrop. Complete with a cast of lovable and relatable characters, the film is an epic
coming-of-age adventure told with global sensibilities and beautiful art. Both children
and adults will love this story for its balance of entertainment with meaningful and
relevant themes. The film received unanimous praise from critics and industry
professionals in India, who called it “the best Indian animated film so far” (Vaibhav
Kumaresh, Celebrated Indian Animator), “Ruia’s storytelling wins you over” (The Times of
India), “amazing clarity and breathtaking freshness” (MoviezAdda.com).

Kushal Ruia, writer / director of “Sons of Ram” & Head, ACK Animation Studios, says,
“The genuine outpouring of love and praise for the film’s storytelling and characters, on
its release in India, was momentous. Now, to have SONS OF RAM play at TAAFI is even more
so for me because as a Sheridan Animation alumnus, I learned all I know about animation
and film right here! Though SONS OF RAM is a very small film compared to what North
American audiences are generally used to, the story has a big heart, is told with
bucket-loads of passion and was made against all odds by a ridiculously talented bunch of
people. I hope the audiences here will connect with ‘Sons of Ram’, just like Indian
audiences did!”
